Here's a Republic that is inhabited, has an economy, and even accepts visitors! His Excellency, The President (Kevin) is super nice. He used to host at the hosting company I used to work at (that used to exist) back in the day. I used to live just miles from it and never visited. I intend to change that at some point :)

I love it!

Reminded me of This article from a few years back. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/shortcuts/2014/jul/...

A highly original work of conceptual art.

The level of commitment is impressive -- there are actual passports, immigration gates, even historical monuments (!)

The New Yorker or The New York Times should write an in-depth profile.

I wonder if this can be seen on Google Maps via satellite? What are the coordinates?
